Well, we have the opposite... So why not? No flaming just because someone doesn't like your over-exposed franchise, okay? :bleh:

Probably the number one game I can't stand that almost EVERY game playing human or robot or intelligent cow on the planet loves is StarCraft. I can't stand having to click my fingers off just so everyone else doesn't gang up on me before I've mined one crystal, and I can't stand how Blizzard just mines other sci-fi creations like Warhammer 40,000 and Starship Troopers and everyone hails them as geniuses. You say "I think the Terrans were inspired by the marines from Starship Troopers," to a bunch of StarCraft fans, and they want your blood.

The rabid fanbase probably makes me hate it more than I normally would, (anime is a similar case) but without them, I would still not be able to stand the "action strategy" of StarCraft, it's annoying, pop gameplay. The units aren't that special.

ARRRGH. When will this "classic" GO AWAY?

i think it's a bit overrated too, but the reason it's so popular is that blizzard are experts at balancing multiple races (even more so in WC3) while making them distinct and fun. they also make top-notch singleplayer storylines (even if the missions get a bit samey and the last missions fall into the C&C trap of just giving the enemy all the technology and a huge lead).

There are a few...
I'm not really sure why, but I always hated Duke Nukem - I got phisicaly sick playing that game (I generaly dislike FPS, although some - like Bridge Commander I played and quite enjoyed). It's just a matter of taste really.

World of Warcraft. A lot of people I know are playing it. Personally I think its a waste of money on a game that isn't all that pretty.

As for any other games... Everquest, I guess.

Halo 2, I don't get it, every time I look at this game I see "bland" written all over it, I can't find the special charm that makes it appealling to so many people, I play something like Half Life 2, and expect with this game's hype and ratings that it would be just as immersive and fun. It wasn't the world was hardly as interactive as many other shooters, the creators thought that pushing around chairs and dropping marines off platforms was enough.

Blah, I hate it.

Probably Halo 2 the game got so much hype up to it's release, it really just started to annoy me really bad.

Diablo 2 has a very good system,but become very boring after few days of gameplay. When time to next level is aproximetly two days I need another motivation than level-up.In most RPGs I found it in story or sub-quests,but this was missing in Diablo.And killing Baal twenty times,too see if he dont drop at least something usable this time is just boring...
However I like mods for Diablo 2 (Zy-El for example)...
